Salted Paper Prints

Research output: Non-textual outputExhibition

Abstract

The photographs, of salinas sites in Aveiro, Figueira da Foz and Rio Maior, (Portugal) are produced using the 'salted paper' method invented by Fox Talbot in the late 1830s, at the dawn of photography. We experience salt through taste, but these images offer another perspective, with salt as both image and as image constructor. The imperfections and materiality of analogue photographic processes offer a different meditation on the meaning of the reproduced image. They are documents to the material qualities and powers as well as the visual appearance, and they evoke the powerful connections to memory and preservation contained in salt's history.
